First of all the specials menu is very good value for money costing just under £11 for a starter/main/rice and naan- and on all occasions the food has been very good However I have decided not to visit again due to the lack of customer service within the establishment. One of the workers behind the bar was extremely argumentative and... More

We visited this restaurant without prior booking at 5.30 on a Saturday evening, we were surprised to find that by 6.15 the restaurant was already half full, a testimony to its popularity. The wine and beers are competitive prices. Both of us ordered Prawn Purée which was very flavoursome, however I thought the pakora/pancake base was too soft for my... More

What a great Indian restaurant! Our food was hot and spicy (as a Madras and Ceylon should be) and the veggie sides also delicious. The saag paneer was particularly good. Very efficient service. What lovely friendly staff! All of this at very reasonable prices and in very quaint surroundings. The restaurant was also lovely and warm on what was a... More

The place is clean and the staff are friendly and welcoming. The sag aloo is good. The prawn madras was like nothing I'd had before in any Indian restaurant. The taste was bland and the texture was like a tin of baby food. The colour was too light. Will not be returning.

We visit the cottage regularly it's a great place for meeting friends or just the two of you. It's great value for money so if your on a boozy curry night this is the place to go. Food is constantly good, service is always welcoming. The toilets are the only thing that lets the restaurant down, they are very cold... More

Went there as a group of 9 the meal took an age to arrive, the order was incorrect but in fairness they left what had not been ordered free but it meant some of the meal did not arrive with the rest. We shared between us most of the food we all agreed it lacked seasoning was uninteresting and not... More

Interesting Indian restaurant. The venue itself makes it an unusual place for a curry as is like old English cottage with lots of small rooms and low ceilings. Did find the food some what "bland" however we do prefer more spicey food and this may be just our preference. Overall was acceptable though. Did find it a little noisy though... More

Never been here before but the group of friends I went with were recommended to eat here. Quite a busy restaurant and close tables but it all adds to atmosphere, it was a bit warm inside but the weather outside was freezing and wet.The service is a bit hit and miss with orders coming out but we got our food...

First visit to this curry house and was very pleased indeed. Cant fault the waiting staff who were more than helpful throughout the evening. They were doing a deal for 1 popadom, any starter, any main and rice and any side. Cant go wrong with this as it really keeps the price down and within a group you can sample... More
